The balance of the rent has to be paid to the owner. It can be paid by cash on arrival, or by bank transfer 45/60 days prior to arrival ( kindly note that credit card payments are seldom accepted)
The Security Deposit is given to the owner upon your arrival at the apartment: it is required to be cash. The security deposit is, of course, returned to you at the end of your stay, provided that there are no damages and the apartment is left in clean condition.
The amount of the security deposit varies from property to property ( euro 150,00 to euro 1.500,00).Some owners do accept your credit card as guarantee.
Electricity, heating, final cleaning charges
Electricity and heating are usually not included in the rent. They are paid according to use.
Final cleaning charge:
Tenants will find the property clean and the beds made-up, they are responsible for their own housekeeping, as properties are self-catered. Most owners do charge the final cleaning separately as they realized that most guests could not do this or did not do this before leaving the property. The fee listed on each property descriptions is based on a stay of up to 7 nights. For longer stays it may be higher.
Internet: it might be subject to a separate charge ( see property's description)
The owner or his/her representative will welcome you at the apartment. Checks-in are usually organized between 3pm and 6pm. I advise you to give your estimated arrival time to the owner as soon as you can ( I recommend at least 3 days in advance).
The owner or his/her representative will meet you at the apartment on your check-out day. Checks-out are usually organized between 8am and 10am. I advise you to give your estimated departure time to the owner as soon as you can.
Number of guests
Only the named people on the apartment's rent confirmation may occupy the property. Any change or the addition of extra people will automatically bring the contract to an end. Children over the age of two are counted as adults.
Cancellation policy and insurance
Should you need to cancel the booking, the paid amount to secure the booking is non-refundable. Therefore you are kindly requested to take a travel insurance to cover this risk.
